Anna Foundation

Assisting disadvantaged schools and communities by providing academic, social and environmental support, as well as equipping children with skills for lifelong learning. We recognise each child as unique and aim to support the holistic development of the child through education (literacy, numeracy, remedial and reading programmes), physical development (sports) and the teaching of life skills through drama games. We also train rural women to implement our programmes (skills development).

Centre for Early Childhood Development

CECD was established in 1994 as a result of research that was conducted around how funding could be used to increase the quality and quantity of Early Childhood Development (ECD) services around South Africa, especially in marginalised communities. The research identified that management and leadership within the ECD sector was poor, and that many ECD centres are established and managed by under skilled women who have identified the need to provide ECD services in their community, but who lack the skills and experience in delivering quality early education opportunities. The current context of our work is to continue improving the quality and accessibility of ECD education services that are available. This is done by offering a range of services that can be provided individually or collectively to support communities. Our work ensures children are adequately prepared to enter Grade 1 school-ready with the appropriate early literacy, numeracy and life skills needed that will give them the head-start they need to thrive in formal schooling.
